Hi All,

I'm building a pair of 4 Pi speakers and have a few quick questions. I intend to use the DE-250-8 and the Omega Pro-15A.

- Should both drivers be the 8 ohm versions?
- The Omega driver ends with "A" and that differs from what I have seen. Is that the correct driver?
- And my last question is about comparing the 15" drivers. Is there a significant difference between the Eminence and the JBL?

Sorry if this has already been answered.

Thank you!

All drivers should be 8Ω drivers, yes. So you would want the DE250-8 and the Omega 15A or JBL 2226H.

As for the qualitative differences between drivers and other options, please see the following links from the Pi Speakers FAQ:
